Build stronger, safer communities. Pedestrian activity puts more eyes on the street, making residential areas more neighborly and commercial districts more vibrant. Build stronger families. Walk with your children and their friends to school, or take a walk with your family after dinner. Families that walk together communicate better together. It’s easy to incorporate walking into your day. You can run your errands on foot, or a walk can double as a social activity – bring a family member, your dog, a friend or a coworker along.

Boston: Cathedral Housing Walking Map

Boston: Cathedral Housing Walking Map

Cathedral Housing is located one of Boston’s liveliest neighborhoods and one of the most walkable. The area around Cathedral Housing is very flat because it is located on land created by filling in tidal marshes. Many streets are named after Massachusetts towns that were being connected by railroads when the area was being built up.

Streets in the South End are laid out in a grid pattern, which makes it easy to get around. You can go up one block and over two, or up two and over one, and always see something new. With many historic and new houses, along with brick sidewalks and many shade trees, the neighborhood is a delightful place to walk.
